    Sorry, I can't. Tried puzzling it out using a dictionary - no dice. I'd guess you should ask your doctor about this. It's a solid lump (not a cyst) of some kind, and it's slightly under an inch long, but more than that I don't know. Sorry - PJH

      Hello PJH!

            Well,so far the explaination I got from the second opinion,UofM Hospital, is not complete.What she diciphered, Hypoechogenic refers to liquid.I see I need to go back to the first hospital,Karmanos, and ask the one that wrote the report!

           Speaking of reports,I was surprised to learn the Mammographic measure of the tumor done by the second facility revealed it smaller in size by several centimenters.Considering the Mammo.'s were about a month apart,perhaps those food-based supplements I've been taking are getting results!

             Good news is the aspiration of the Sentinal Lymph Node revealed no cancer cells!I've asked for a Lumpectomy and to leave the Node dispite the 'standard practice' of removal for dissection.I'm hoping periodic aspirations will work in my favor until there are better options!

                                                               Thank you for all you do!

                                                                               Linda

      Well, good news all around, Linda. Now if you can just get that first doctor to speak in plain English to you... Hope the tumor is indeed smaller - that would be a plus. Good luck in your next steps- PJH
